Warp Five: A Star Trek Enterprise Podcast

Friendship and fellowship is important for people's general health and well-being. All of the Star Trek series have shown some sort of interaction between the members of its crew on screen in varying ways. The Next Generation had poker, Deep Space Nine had Vic's lounge, Voyager had Sandrine's and the resort program, and Enterprise had movie night. Since the invention of home video releases of films, many fans of movies have participated in an event know as "Movie Night!" People gather together in a group, watch a movie, and then discuss the film in a casual conversation. Sometimes they even go out for a slice of pie while they discuss.

"Damage" With Phyllis Strong.
 
The episode "Damage" from the third season of Star Trek: Enterprise was controversial for two plot points that took Archer and T'Pol into dark areas they hadn't been to before. The episode revealed T'Pol's addiction to Trellium D, the substance that was used to line starships and protect them from the anomalies that were scattered through the expanse. Meanwhile, Archer made the controversial decision to steal parts from a passing starship and leave them stranded, so that he could continue on with his mission of stopping the Xindi weapon.


In this episode of Warp Five, hosts Floyd Dorsey and Brandon-Shea Mutala speak with the writer of the episode "Damage," Phyllis Strong. We talk about T'Pol's drug addiction, story comparisons to history, Archer going dark, Phlox's place in the episode, and if Phyllis would change anything after all these years.

Stay tuned to the very end for an important message from the hosts.
